Abstract

Plasma norepinephrine levels in 10 healthy young males were significantly elevated after 3 days of a low sodium (less than 500 mg/day) diet. The low sodium diet was also associated with disturbed sleep patterns: decreased rapid eye movement and slow wave sleep and increased wakefulness. These sleep changes are similar to those seen in normal aged adults, who also undergo elevations of daytime and nighttime plasma norepinephrine. These results suggest the possibility that increased sympathetic nervous system activity may affect sleep patterns, and that therapies altering sympathetic activity may affect sleep.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 22. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 14 May 2018.
All research outputs
#511,712
of 10,696,187 outputs
Outputs from The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism
#480
of 9,108 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#17,493
of 305,343 outputs
Outputs of similar age from The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism
#51
of 425 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 10,696,187 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 95th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 9,108 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 8.3. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 305,343 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 425 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 87% of its contemporaries.
